Abstract [en]

Gender equality has been on the political agenda in Sweden for nearly half a century and today’s official ideology is that gender equality shall infiltrate all areas of Swedish politics. However, previous research has shown that Sweden is a patriarchal society, which manifests itself in all aspects of society, but also in the heterosexual couple relationship. This qualitative interview study identifies which factors affect experienced gender equality among ten heterosexual women who are in a couple relationship and aims to determine whether or not a difference exists between two different generations of women. The result shows that women experience that they take greater emotional and practical responsibility than men in the relationship and identifies communication and emotional attunement as being key factors which affect gender equality in the heterosexual relationship. Furthermore, it illustrates an increased level of awareness regarding gender equality among the younger generation of women, but no big differences between the age groups were found. In accordance to previous research, this study shows that patriarchal gender structures greatly affect the heterosexual couple relationship in all aspects.

Abstract [sv]

Jämställdhet har varit på Sveriges politiska agenda i nästan ett halvt århundrade och idag är den officiella ideologin att jämställdhet skall prägla all svensk politik. Tidigare forskning inom området tyder dock på attSverige är ett patriarkalt samhälle och att detta manifesteras både i samhället i stort, men även i den heterosexuella parrelationen. Denna kvalitativa intervjustudie identifierar vilka faktorer som påverkar upplevd jämställdhet hos tio kvinnor som befinner sig i heterosexuella parrelationer och försöker fastställa huruvida någon skillnad existerar mellan två olika generationers kvinnor. Studien visade huvudsakligen att kvinnor upplever sig ta mer känslomässigt och praktiskt ansvar än män samt att kommunikation och känslomässig anknytning har stor påverkan på upplevd jämställdhet i den heterosexuella parrelationen. Resultatet illustrerade även en ökad medvetenhet kring jämställdhet hos den yngre generationen, men någon större skillnad mellan åldersgruppernaerhölls ej. I enlighet med tidigare forskning visar studien att patriarkala könsstrukturer har stor påverkan på den heterosexuella parrelationen i alla aspekter.
